Art on the Farm Photo Update
Our second week of Art on the Farm started with some life drawing. Under Julie and Rosie’s guidance everyone showed some really impressive progress in their drawings. We’re looking forward to what is produced tomorrow in our final session working with the figure.
Our next three days were spent out west, starting in the Burren, Co. Clare. This surreal limestone landscape is home to many flower species, some found in only a hand-full of locations around the world. Other spots on our first day included the Poulnabrone Dolmen, a 5000 year old portal tomb and the Cliffs of Moher.
On our second day we took a ferry to Inis Mor. On the way we were treated to a coastguard training session where our ship was boarded from a helicopter. Once on the island we embarked on an epic bike ride full of spectacular scenery, a few showers, some bumps, bruises and scrapes. After a bit of shopping for authentic Aran wool sweaters we hiked to Dun Aengus, a ring fort on the edge of a sheer cliff.
Our final day out west started with a walk to the remains of what is thought to be the smallest church in the world. After a ride back to the mainland we spent a couple hours in Galway before heading back to the farm.
Our past few days have been spent preparing for the final self directed projects, and of course a 4th on July celebration with the obligatory BBQ and flag shaped cake. Its safe to say everyone was stuffed after the huge meal. Be sure to have a look at our updated gallery of images by clicking here.
